We are often asked about our experience of working with international associations to attract industry events to Russia, St. Petersburg, on venue presentations, and inspection visits.
These photos and video are an example of the presentation of the European Regional Science Association Congress in 2014 (ERSA 2014 Congress) at the previous Congress in Palermo, Sicily – presentation to the European Organizing Committee (EOC) and the Association Committee (ERSAC).
The attractiveness of St. Petersburg as a cultural center is not in anyone’s doubt (theaters, museums, festivals). But it is equally important to give answers to the most burning questions: getting a visa to Russia, traveling around the city, the quality of hotels and prices for accommodation, security on the streets and public transport, sponsorship (including that one from the city Government).
During the registration we organized our stand and presented the venue to potential future delegates.
Then followed the inspection visits of the Organizing Committee in St. Petersburg a few months before the Congress: we showed them the possibilities of the venues (the faculties of the St. Petersburg State University for the sections, the Tavrichesky Palace for Opening Ceremony, Smolny Cathedral for Closing), the main hotels, organized a food test (catering, serving lunches and coffee-breaks, restaurant for Gala dinner),
discussed the logistics and registration at the same time in several locations, work with several dozen volunteers.
All our most favorite challenges!))
Good experience for Monomax team!
